from Anne Stevenson, Stone Milk; “The Myth of Medea”
At the beginning of June, I wrote an essay about vaccine passports and body sovereignty which I didn’t share here yet,
I imagine this is a charged subject for many folks, but I have a growing feeling that having hard conversations is needed and something I should in general practice more, with permission for myself and others to learn and grow and be misunderstood in the process.

mention of being attacked
in the past week I was physically assaulted twice by people on the street asking for money who seemed to be somewhat losing their minds — this is the first time this happened since I’ve lived in berlin. no injuries, ran away both times, but still spooked. intuitively I see a connection between this experience and the extended lockdown. I wish them peace and feel this as a small reverberation of their suffering.

a part of me loves working on the computer, but for me personally I find any room I work on the computer in gets an energetic presence that makes it strange to do other things there, a sort of residue. someday I hope to work in a shack explicitly for computer work, with an inside inspired by this image by Josan Gonzales (https://josan.artstation.com/resume) and an outside surrounded by jungle and other computer-free zones

I have encountered more image descriptions on Mastodon in 24 hours than I have in Twitter in a couple of years. Seriously. I'm not exaggerating.
As a blind person, this means a lot to me. If you read this and you describe your images, thank you so, so, so much on behalf of all of us. If you don't, now you know you'll be helping random Internet strangers make sense of your posts by typing in a few more words than usual.
xavier dagba's writing is some of my favorite on the internet, its very earnest and really gets to me
"Maybe you're not lost. Maybe you've just been given the false impression that everything needed to be figured out by now."

At the same time that missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls and two-spirit people are being scrubbed from Instagram by Zuck.
They still won’t explain how a “technical issue” caused MMIWG2S posts to disappear on a national day of awareness.
Maybe Mark buying another 600 acres of our Hawaiian land and forcing us off of with US State cops and courts might come up. Also that sweet fossil fuel company money to erase the indigenous stopping pipelines, etc...
